France : TotalEnergies Allocates €200 Million to Equip its Highway Service Stations with High-Power EV Charge Points
Paris, October 28, 2021 – TotalEnergies will allocate up to €200 million over a year to equip more than 150 of its motorway and expressway service stations with high-power charge points for electric vehicles.
This major investment is intended to support the growth of electric mobility in France:
- By end-2021, 60 motorway service stations will be equipped with high-power EV charge points (50 to 175 kW).
- By end-2022, more than 110 TotalEnergies motorway and expressway service stations will be equipped with high-power EV charging stations (175 kW charge points). In parallel, TotalEnergies will actively participate in the upcoming calls for tenders from the motorway operators.
- By 2023, TotalEnergies aims to have 200 service stations equipped with high-power EV charge points on these major roads, along with 100 additional stations in urban areas, notably in the form of high-power charging hubs. With these moves, TotalEnergies is reaffirming its ambition to offer to its customers a high-power charging station every 150 kilometers.
“Thanks to the revenue generated from our oil and gas businesses, we can massively invest in electric vehicles charging infrastructures and accelerate our transformation,” underlines Alexis Vovk, President Marketing & Services at TotalEnergies. “Our assertive positioning therefore supports the growth of electric mobility for long-distance travel. The installation of high-power EV charge points in our motorway and expressway service stations in France contributes to the public authorities’ 100,000 Charge Points Plan.”
This acceleration is a pillar of TotalEnergies’ strategy to be a key player in electric mobility in Europe, especially in France.
Since 2020, TotalEnergies pursues its development in world-class metropolitan areas, with a large portfolio of EV charge points in operation or under construction in Amsterdam and its Metropolitan Region (22,000), Antwerp (3,000), London (1,700), Paris (2,300), Singapore (1,500) and Wuhan (11,000).
